Diagnosis

Your doctor will perform a physical examination that focuses on your walk, the range of motion in the limb, and joint swelling or tenderness.

X-rays typically show a loss of joint space in the affected knee.

Blood and other special imaging tests, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be needed to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis.
